Bia Herbst is a photographer who loves to portrait, to appropriate and to reinterpret art museum’s pieces and also to capture the nuances of nature.
By obliterating the camera, she looks at the beauty of the ephemeral to catch that inspiring je ne sais quoi, transmitting subtle messages to the viewer.
Born in 1982 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Bia is a postgraduate in Photography and Image from IUPERJ/ UCAM. She was also part of the Brazilian photography collective Onze-17 and exhibited some of her works in Brazil at Cândido Mendes Art gallery, CCJF-RJ and Tiradente’s International Photography Festival. Nowadays Bia Herbst is based in Italy where she keeps seeking the “ephemeral” in her works.
